Rosecliff was built by Tessie and Herman Oelrichs between 1899-1901.
They hired McKim, Mead and White to design their cottage on Bellevue Ave after the Grand Trianon in Versailles.
The most unusual feature of Rosecliff is its exterior surface. Although it looks like marble, the house is faced in white glazed terracotta tile.
The house gets its name from the beautiful rose bushes on the property.
Today it is one of the mansions operated by the Preservation Society of Newport County.
